Banksy recently unveiled his latest sculpture edition which reinterprets the traditional nativity scene. Scar of Bethlehem portrays Mary and Joseph gathered around baby Jesus on the floor of a barn, as a large concrete wall is placed as the main backdrop. Strewn with bullet marks and graffiti with the words “Love” and “Paix” (peace), a shell explosion in four directions leaves a large opening emulating the Star of Bethlehem as it shines onto the family. The artwork is available in limited quantity at The Walled Off Hotel.

The piece was made in Japan and is crafted of 100% ceramic just like its previous counterpart. The figurine is then finished off with star-shaped engravings on the back, and even more holes for her eyes to add a sinister touch.
